Malignant Ghost


These days I often play live-chess against several,
Every move he makes on the board is clearly visible,
Frankness of the moves may look sincere and benign,
However, I am rather concerned with what is invisible,
It’s his next move and it can be really malign.

I have a friend who once said that she was a queen,
She only hears my voice and sees my reflection on the screen,
Since she cannot touch me, she thinks that I am a malignant ghost,
I might be malignant, but I try to be your best dost(*),
When you come here to see me, I will be a benignant host.
